When visiting Louisiane the tourist office showed us the way to Natchitoches. The oldest town in the state.
The staff of the local tourist office provided us a warm welcome and phoned a couple of B&B to stay.
We went to the Sweet Cane in and fell in love with the place.
The owners John and Kathy are great and warm people who realy understand hospitality.
Great victorian vibe, super cosy rooms and freshly prepared breakfast by John and staff.
The location is near downtown so its is easy to walk around. John and kathy also own a restaurant which is called Maglieaux's. The old name Antoons still appears on websites.
Maglieaux's is Tops as well and worthwile a visit.
Oh did I mention the happy hour every day with free wine and cookies..
This is the place to stay in Natchitoches, -nag-ge-tosh and we wish John and Kathy all the best in their new adventures.
You guys Rock!
